“Awesome stay and customer service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 27, 2014

I stayed on May 6 and May 7 for personal and business purposes. As a Hilton diamond member, I have to say out of all the hotels, this was my best experience. From the moment I pulled up, I was greeted outside with offering of assistance with my luggage. At the check in counter the staff was so pleasant and customer friendly. Special thanks to Ricardo and Zakeya at the front desk. Every time my friend and I would enter or exit, they would remember our names, ask how we are doing and if we needed anything. The hotel and rooms are very clean and comfortable. Modern decor, which was nice. The breakfast choice was very good. Another special thanks to Janette in food services. Each morning she would make sure all items were properly stocked and offered assistance. I will definitely choose this hotel over the other hotels that I stayed at in Tampa. Thank you for making my stay during a stressful travel time so very pleasant. Denise Scott, Plantation FL

My husband and I stayed here for one night on a road trip. This was a great place to stay to break up the highway on the way from the FL east coast to the west coast and gave us the opportunity to see some of Tampa. This hotel was a quick drive to Ybor City and downtown Tampa, where we spent most of our time while there. Hotel was clean and comfortable, easily accessible from interstate. Staff was very friendly and helpful and accommodations were good.

Normally stay at Hilton properties right outside Airport -- but were all full. Hampton is an average property and rooms were OK and comfortable. In window A/C did not work fully and struggled to keep room cool....high speed on unit did not work. Frig worked but fell out of furniture every time attempt was made to open it. Staff was very friendly and accomodating -- breakfast buffet was somewhat sparse and not what I've come to expect from Hampton chain. Overall a good hotel but will continue to stay at Hilton properties by airport.

Tip: The hotel sits in a very-high traffic area come early morning commutes so be aware and plan accordingly. Took quite a while to get from hotel just to the Interstate which is less than a mile -- also recommend if commuting to downtown take major roads and stay off of Interstate. Was much faster and easier to get to when coming out of hotel parking lot.

Great place to stay. Very clean, comfortable, good, helpful, and courteous staff. I also stay at the Hampton Inn in Tallahassee while on business. Same great staff and same great service. This trip I am going to my son's Master's Graduation Ceremony. I AM SO PROUD. IVY LEAGUE SCHOOL GRADUATE.

The staff was helpful and pleasant. We were visiting relatives for one day before heading back to NY. The 2nd floor hallway smelled like a dirty ashtray. The footstool in the room had no padding and the bed was not as comfortable as every other Hampton Inn. The breakfast attendant also pestered every guest for a good evaluation.

Thank you for selecting our hotel for your recent stay. We have listened to your comments and are in the process of reviewing our hallway air freshener system and will also look at the mattress in the room where you slept. Since our mattresses are new, this concerns me very much and may indicate a broken frame. I appreciate that you've brought it to our attention. All of your feedback is appreciated and I thank you for taking your time to submit your comments.

Hotel was comfortable. Front desk staff friendly and helpful. Complimentary water and cookies were great. Rooms were clean with comfortable beds. Breakfast was not up to Hampton Inn standards. Would stay here again
